An added bonus is that the PX800 even permits the use of high quality SD cards to record codec formats of 50Mbs or less, if so desired. A dedicated SD card slot is also provided for user file up/download and additional proxy recording.
The PX800’s three 2.2M MOS imagers provide unparalleled image quality; especially impressive is the camera’s low light performance, easily capable of making full color HD images where the human eye sees virtually nothing! Combine that with the powerful video DSP and creative image control capability usually found only on production or studio cameras, the results speak for themselves.
The camera’s IT workflow capability is impressive; the PX800 Ultra CODEC provides simultaneous dual recording, with choices of HD or SD proxies. New wireless workflow offerings include high quality HD streaming, adaptive QoS streaming, or FTP, all via your choice of 4G/LTE, Wi-Fi or LAN connectivity.

With its breadth of recording options, superb image quality, variety of professional I/Os and powerful expandability, the AJ-PX5000G will homes in network news, documentary, highend corporate and sports production, as well as the rental market.
The AJ-PX800 provides a wide array of high quality image capture possibilities, from standard definition, to today’s HD broadcast standards 720p and 1080i. For higher level production, the user can choose one or more of the 1080p formats.
For super-efficient news, reality TV or long format capture, AVC-Ultra’s LongG formats of G25 and G50 provide production quality 4:2:2 sampled 10 bit recordings at bit rates that until recently were relegated to ENG use. If even more efficiency is required choose the LongG12 mode, and shoot content that rivals codecs of more than twice the bit rate.
Like the current AJ-PX270 and AJ-PX5000 the new PX800 provides innovative network functionality to improve workflows. The PX800’s AVC-Proxy files and Network function wired/wireless LAN) make it possible to configure a workflow for previewing images, editing metadata, editing playlists, and uploading images quickly and at low cost with a PC/Mac, tablet, or smartphone.
